According to a report from TMZ, Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond is taking action to take away his parental privileges with their two boys. She’s filed court papers in Georgia asking a judge to strip the Grammy-winning performer of joint physical custody of their children as soon as possible.
According to the documents, Tameka claims Usher has repeatedly failed to obtain her permission to travel outside the state with the kids, which he’s legally obligated to do.
Tameka Raymond also claims Usher is required and has failed to:
– get her approval before hiring nannies
– give her first shot to watch the kids when he’s away for more than 8 hours
– allow her to take the kids for 2-weeks in the summer of 2011
– let her have custody of the kids during Christmas break 2010
Tameka also claims Usher closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card — which he specifically said he wouldn’t do — and now she can no longer take advantage of the “special benefits” the card offers.
According to the documents, Usher also promised to pay $5,000 per month so Tameka could hire her own nanny for the kids, but he hasn’t paid in months, and now owes $34,000 worth of payments.
Tameka also claims there has been a “substantial change in [Usher's] income” since they got divorced — and because of his success, she should get even more money for child support.
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Wednesday.
